American Express Cards

Can anyone tell me if they have used this new card in NYC? I think it works the same as a credit card but you put the money on it yourself, rather than buy travellers cheques you buy this card instead. There is a really good exchange rate with the card just now, much better than with buying travellers cheques.

Thanks

The card you're referring to is accepted any & everywhere that "regular" Amex cards are accepted. If this is the one that could also be used at ATM's you'll be fine, otherwise, be sure to have another means of accessing cash, or charging items/meals because not all places do accept American Express.

I know the travellers' cheque cards have had some good deals recently so by all means, take advantage of the offers.

And enjoy NYC!
